In 2016, CBU articulated its vision for the next five years and outlined the pathway towards achieving this vision. The Strategic Plan for 2017-2022 provides the framework for the university to grow, thrive, and ever more fully realize our mission of “educating minds, touching hearts, and remembering the presence of God.” The Strategic Plan developed from a collaborative effort that solicited ideas and input from virtually all stakeholders in the university. See the brief overview of the history of the Strategic Plan for further information.
On October 7, 2016, the Strategy Vision Map - a broad outline of where we want to steer the University and how we should get there - was approved by the Board of Trustees. Since then, the Strategic Plan Steering Committee has identified those initiatives that should be prioritized for the first phase of the plan. The Steering Committee then identified one or two “Champions” for each initiative, people who have the expertise and energy to make each initiative a success. The Champions, in turn, have convened working committees to outline the steps necessary to achieve the initiative. We invite you to familiarize yourself with the first phase of the plan by exploring the Strategy Vision Map.
The Strategic Plan is a guide to realizing our vision, but it is not a straitjacket. The Steering Committee continues to monitor progress on milestones and provide support to champions whenever needed. When necessary, existing initiatives will be retooled. The Steering Committee will also identify the next set of initiatives to act on as the current phase wraps up.
